. at the first one, the president underperformed against governor romney. at the second debate, both men were amped up. and last night's plot line appears to be the president's foreign policy attack and mitt romney's movement to the center on a number of issues. decreasing the policy distance between the two men as 60 million americans watched on live television. starting today, there was a new sense of urgency out on the trail. now, the travel becomes urgent and frenetic. every second counts and so does every state. we have it all covered and we begin with nbc's peter alexander traveling with the romney campaign in henderson, nevada. peter, good evening. >> reporter: brian, good evening to you. as you just noted, nearly 60 million americans watched last night's debate. in fact, that was the smallest number of the three presidential debates. over the next two weeks as they bounce across the country, effectively hop scotching one another. both sides believe tonight they are in the driver's seat. >> give it up for -- >> reporter: kicking off their final 14 days toward the election, a split scre

issues, as governor romney has. >> the president had created this false image of mitt romney in the minds of some voters that was completely knocked down in that first debate. and i think now what's becoming apparent in these debates is that the president has no plan for the next four years. he's failed to outline any sort of ideas how he'll govern the country in his words forward over the next four years. and that's why these debates have mattered more than ever. tomorrow is his last chance to tell us what he's going to do over the next four years. >> and good morning. it is monday, october 22nd. and folks here in boca have been up since 2:00 in the morning. there are 15 days to go until election day, and we're live from racks downtown eatery, where everyone is here in boca raton, florida, just miles away from lynn university where the final presidential debate will take place tonight. welcome, everyone. it's good to have you here. we have a great crowd here. >> it's unbelievable. >> can you believe this? >> great crowd in here. they're all packed out there. >> they're wide awake. >> mik
